The first presentation of the new Ingraham /)v^Jlcv rj^c Wrist Watch 




Hi? 6 5 



Over two years have been spent in tooling 
and perfecting this sturdy, superior wrist 
watch movement. It is small enough to be 
attractive on a lady's wrist, but large 
enough to embody the spring power and 
rugged construction necessary for a reli- 
able timepiece. All the plates and also the 
wheels of the train and the escapement are 
pressed out with sub dies, insuring absolute 
uniformity and microscopic precision. 
The watch is furnished with a silver-plated 
dial, chromium-plated case, and a curved 
back to fit the wrist, and may be had with 
tan or black straps or chromium-plated 
bracelets as ordered. 



This watch and bracelet have been delicately 
ornamented to give the refined appearance of 
a more expensive timepiece and are packed in 
an attractive, colored gift box providing an 
excellent display. 



First Lady Wrist Watches are packed in attractive individual display 
boxes and are furnished 12 in an individual box and shipped in lots of 
36, or multiples thereof. The strap watches are supplied with all black 
or all pigskin straps or are assorted 6 black and 6 pigskin to a box. 
Unless otherwise specified, assorted straps will be shipped.

ONE-DAY ALARM 



The great popular demand and recognized superiority of an eight-day over a one- 



The Gable and the Automatic are already well known, having a large distri- 
bution. The Broadcast is new. All four clocks are fitted with the Ingraham 
8-day alarm clock movement which has no superior on the market. The 
advantage of being in a position to wind one's clock but once a week as 
against doing it daily is too obvious and too much appreciated by the consumer

EIGHT-DAY ALARM 



day Alarm has encouraged the inclusion of these numbers in our 1938-39 line 



to require comment. It should be pointed out, however, that the 8-day alarm is 
much quieter in operation than the average 1-day, due to its having what is 
practically a watch escapement. This same factor also provides greater accu- 
racy as a timepiece. The 8-day clock movement is also particularly sturdy and 
has a long life.

HEIGHT 6y 2 " 

This is an entirely new design in a 614" alarm clock. The clock has

the omission of the mat and the use of a convex glass, resulting in a

graceful and in complete harmony. The dial is of the latest style with 
a minute circle inside of the hour numerals and with radium luminous 
dots at the hours and with radium luminous hands. The clock is also 
fitted with a large mellow-toned bell and stem shut-off.

This is an entirely new design for the public who wish a 
more ornamental upright self-starting electric timepiece 
clock. The case is made of walnut with attractive 
moulded and capped walnut sides. The front edging is 
highlighted with zebra wood, while between the inlaid 
walnut strips is a center plaque of butt walnut bordered 
with pencil stripe walnut — the latter being matched to 
the center. The contrasting color of these woods, which 
are left in their natural color, produce a very attractive 
clock. The feet, of course, are solid walnut and finished 
in keeping with the quality of the case. Sash is gold-plated 
and the 4J4" dial is silver-plated and edged with gilt.

These truly beautiful clocks of decidedly modern "design have been developed for fine Offices, 

Schools, Restaurants, Stores, Barber and Beauty Shops, Hospitals, Hotels, Clubs, Night Clubs, 

Theatre Lobbies, and wherever a quality electric wall clock is needed. 

They represent the most attractive, thin, readable, and streamline clocks that have been offered and have proven so 
popular that it has been necessary to put them out in both walnut and white enamel finish. The twelve-sided clock 
has finely mitered corners which are shaded where furnished in walnut, adding greatly to the attractive appear- 
ance. Both clocks have large convex glass, making the particularly legible dials easy to read at almost any angle. 
The hands likewise are substantial and easily read at a distance. The clocks are fitted with self-starting synchro- 
nous Ingraham motors and are practically perfect timepieces.

The E. Ingraham Company operates one of 
the largest and best equipped wood working 
plants in New England, with facilities for de- 
signing and producing high grade cabinets in 
sizes up to but not exceeding end table radio 
models. This Company has produced many 
thousands of units of such specialties as silver- 
ware trays, gift boxes, humidors, small tables, 
compacts, inter-office speaking cabinets, and 
table model and midget radio cabinets. 

Three Ingraham designs in radio cabinets 
made exclusively for the Emerson Radio & 
Phonograph Corporation are illustrated on 
these pages. It is of interest to note that two 
of these Ingraham designs were responsible 
for starting new vogues in radios.

Elias Ingraham, the founder of this Company, was born in Marl-

he was assessed for

He apparently worked as a cabinet maker until 1831 when he appeared in two 
real estate transactions and was assessed an "Occupation Tax" for $25.00, 
indicating that he was in business for himself. In November 1831, with William 
G. Bartholomew, he bought a small piece of land and erected a "cabinet making 
shop" which he sold in the following year, but continued to be assessed an 
"Occupation Tax." However, again in September 1835 he purchased land on 
part of which the present factories of The E. Ingraham Company are now located. 
In this factory he manufactured chairs, mirrors and clock cases. In lanuary 1840 
he made an assignment for the benefit of his creditors but later in the year his 
brother Andrew bought from the Trustee the properties involved and in 1841 
Benjamin Ray was admitted to half interest in the business which produced clocks 
under the name of Ray & Ingraham. In 1844 Ray retired from the firm and Elisha 
C. Brewster became a partner, which partnership continued under the name of

HISTORY 




Brewster & Ingrahams until 1852, after which the firm was known as E. & A. 
Ingraham, consisting of the partnership of Elias and Andrew Ingraham. On 
December 6, 1855, however, the factory was completely burned to the ground. 
In 1856 and 1857 they were manufacturing clocks under the name of E. & A. 
Ingraham, Ansonia, Conn. In 1858, however, Elias was back in Bristol manu- 
facturing clocks and the Company now has sales records dating from 1859 as 
well as ledgers which apparently survived the fire, recording some of the earlier 
activities of the firm. In 1857 the name was changed to E. Ingraham <& Company, 
in 1880 to The E. Ingraham & Company and in 1884 to The E. Ingraham 
Company.

HISTORY 



44 



From the close of the Civil War upwards, the fortunes of Elias showed 
considerable improvement. Elias died in 1885 after over fifty years of manu- 
facturing activities, the greater part of which found him involved in the financial 
difficulties which beset the majority of the early clock manufacturers. Before his 
death, however, he found the business well established. 

In 1887, the Company built a substantial brick factory of mill construction 
which was the first in the vicinity to be lighted by electricity. From that time on 
the business of the Company progressed until today its plant is modern in every 
respect, its floor space having been doubled in the last decade with modern 
buildings. It has always been the policy of the Company to keep its factory 
equipped with the most up-to-date and best machinery obtainable and to employ 
only the best workmen. Its goal has been to make the best clocks obtainable, 
both in design and quality. 

The firm having been in continuous existence for over one hundred years, 
it is now under the management of direct descendants of Elias Ingraham. 

For ready reference follows a chronological list of the changes in the 
name of the firm, with dates:
